    Hi all,

    I like the look of this band and it looks like it would go quite nicely with my SS but I can't find the band anywhere in the UK - was it discontinued?

    If so any ideas on a good place to pick one up? Don't really want to do eBay ideally as I've got fake ones a couple of times from there.

    Thanks!

    All the 'Grade A' bands I've bought have been sealed in their original boxes!

    They are not in the US anymore as far as I know. You seem to find all the collectible bands.

    Never buy sport bands or Milanese bands from CEX. They're often knock-offs as the staff don't seem to know how to tell the difference between a genuine and an eBay copy. Genuine bands ALWAYS have the size and the Nike+ branding on the inside of the band, knock-offs don't.

    Ive had several from CEX that were sold as genuine but weren't. On the other hand, the leather ones I've bought were genuine, probably because they're a lot harder to fake.

    Bit of a random thread revival but I’ve been researching Nike bands and happening across this post.

    As it turns out I just received a Milanese loops from CEX, A condition for my wife. It’s brand new, boxed, still had the sticky tabs on and is a latest model (marked 40mm on the box and lug on the strap). For £55 it was well worth the gamble and mild inconvenience of returning it to my local store, had it been fake.

    So what’s to stop you from checking whether it’s genuine or a copy when you go into CEX?
